Final Tally on Insurance Marketplaces

By Nicolas Terry

The Commonwealth Fund, here, has a very useful update on state choices for their marketplace types. The importance of these exchanges is noted by the authors: “The Congressional Budget Office estimates that by the end of next year some 9 million people will have enrolled in plans offered through their state marketplace, rising to 25 million by 2022. The majority of the enrollees will also receive premium subsidies.”
The final tally?
  • State-run: 17 plus DC
  • State-federal partnership: 7
  • Federally-facilitated: 26
